I was 30 years old and my dad bought me this truck for $7500 cash brand new.
I've put 600,000 miles on it.
I'm 52 now and feel old but this truck does not (feel old).
Runs absolutely perfect.
I've changed the oil in it around 90 times.
The odometer quit about 11 years ago, the muffler 8 years ago and the windshield wipers about 9 years ago.
I've had 7 windshields, 3 clutches, a water pump, s-belt, several fuel filters, and a couple of brake jobs.
No power steering.
Electrical system is pretty messed up.
Gauge lights unreliable. Windows can barely get rolled up or down.
Major sun cracked dashboard.
Truck runs perfect.
Cost me nothing, basically, for 22 years.
